A Quick Step-by-Step Guide to Install a Radio in an EZGO Golf Cart
Transform your tee time into tune time! Below are the materials that you will need for this task, followed by the detailed steps.
What to Prepare
- Converter or deep cycle battery
- Mounting bracket
- Drill and drill bits
Step 1: Start by choosing the right radio to install in a club car golf cart.
Because of exposure to elements like water and heat, I recommend something that can withstand harsh environments. Marine radios are great since they are meant to be tough.
Step 2: Mind the specs of the club car.
For instance, in a 48 volt golf cart, you might first need a converter to fit a 12-volt radio. This will ensure drawing enough power to sustain the radio’s requirements. As an alternative, you can also add an extra deep-cycle marine battery.
Step 3: Choose the appropriate location of the radio for EZGO golf cart.
In most cases, it’s a matter of personal preference. I like putting it in the glove compartment. Here, it has enough protection from the rain.
If you opt to place it in the glove compartment, use a small saw to create a hole in the glove box’s door. It should be large enough for the radio to fit in.
Step 4: Mount the radio using the included mounting bracket.
Most models will include a radio mount upon purchase. Otherwise, you can go online and find a bracket suitable for your radio.
Step 5: Assemble the speakers.
I suggest putting it under the canopy or the compartment below the seat. Drill holes depending on where you will install them.
Step 6: Connect the stereo system.
Run the power cable from the battery to the radio. Connect the radio as well to the speaker using the provided wire.
Step 7: Test the EZGO golf cart stereo to make sure everything is working.
Make sure the wires are secure in their right places. Then, turn your radio on and see if it works normally.
